We are a party of 4 with two boys 13&8 and would like to dock for the night. We would like to find a marina that would be fun for us and the kids. Any help would be much appreciated.

I agree with leverick. It's also the best deal around. Scrub seems to also be a favorite with the kids due to the water slide in the pool..etc

Yep. Leverick.
It is our grandkids's favorite.

Yup - second Leverick or Scrub. Both are great.

Leverick has a good pizza deal on Tuesday nights.

Leverick Bay!!!

Nick is often on this site and can give you details, but I have docked there many nights and am a firm believer in the value

I'll also add that if you plan on visiting the baths, do it from Leverick. Rent a car and tour the island - that in itself is fun! But accessing the baths by car is much safer than swimming in.

I have heard that if you bring your BVI cruising permit you don't have to pay to get into the baths if arriving by car.

Is this true?

Yes, no need to pay by car if you being the permit, although we've never had to show it.

Don't overlook Bitter End YC. They have a good docks, a fleet of Hobies and windsurfers and other boats available, and good organized kid's programs. Plus a Friday pizza party with a movie.

We are going on a charter April 2015 60'Horizon power cat and was wondering if anybody is familiar with this vessel and can give us any pros and cons? Thank you!

Definitely Leverick. Can't beat Nick's deal there. And it's always been a favorite stop for our kids. Spent a night there and later a night in Spanish town last month. Were shocked at what we paid in Spanish town compared to Leverick.
